About the Author
Praise For Bun Bun Button…
"Brimming with nostalgia, heartfelt sentimentality, and eccentricity . . . portrait of a tight-knit intergenerational bond. . . . Polacco fills the pages with tumbling action, familial warmth, and love. . . . A cozy ode to the inherent magic in a visit with a grandparent."
"Concepts that young children can immediately connect with. . . . A first-rate intergenerational story, sure to be read over and over again."
-Library Media Connection
"Exuberant pencil and marker illustrations. . . . A comforting story about the strong bond between a grandmother and her granddaughter and the loss and recovery of a beloved toy."
-School Library Journal
"Polacco's exuberant and expressive pictures convey Paige's excitement and delight. . . . Bun Bun's return, somewhat the worse for wear, brings a softly sentimental end to a classic childhood experience."
"[Polacco;s] pencil-and-marker illustrations always give the events a core of plausibility, making this gentle journey a good one for sensitive readers—here comfort far outweighs any trauma."
